      68. TO JOHN THORNTON1
      For my much esteemed friend Mr John Thornton, These etc.

      Good Sir,
      I could hardly find time for this scrible, by reason of Dr Manton2 to whose company I cannot but elevate my selfe whiles hee is here. Newes we have none but whats evill. The Diurnall3 gives you a true (though malicious) account of the late petition, But conceiles the occasion, because it reflects much on the honor of the Lord Chancellor and another great person. For the Chancellor sent to Dr Manton etc. and asks them why they did not petition, telling them that the king thought they were sullen and had some designe in hand, assuring them also that the king would give an indulgence to Dr Manton, Dr Bates,4 and some few more; wherefore they petitioned in that forme that you read and yet were put off with a flay of a fox taile. So that the younkers in the house of commons are like to call them to barre for petitioning against an act of parliament, and then they must name the persons that encouraged and invited them thereto, and that will cause something to doe at court. Yet Mr Edward Russell5 says the next session of parliament will relieve us all. Credat Judius Apella. The tumults in London are nothing so bad as common fame represents them, though some disturbances the new preachers had by the boyes and by none else in three or four churches. I am somewhat troubled to heare that Mr Gurnall, Mr Ford, Dr Horton, Dr Lightfoot6 should conforme. But by his owne strength shall no man be strong. Mr Jeanes is reported to have conformed and presently to dye sadly and desperately. The Lord Booth is ragingly distracted; the Lord remember him for good. I hope the cryes of many 1000 soules in England for the bread of life will pierce the heavens (there being neere 2000 ejected ministers) and that God who hath now hid his face, will repent him of the evill. To which end the Lord purge away the iniquity of the daughter of Sion. The Duke of York would have had ..

      2For Thomas Manton, the well-known Presbyterian, see C.R. and D.N.B.
      3The Diurnall was a news-journal. The petition described in this journal was delivered to the king three days after St Bartholomew's Day 1662, but Lord Clarendon's advice proved hasty and the indulgence was not granted. The matter is discussed by R. S. Boshe , The Making of the Restoration Settlement. 1951, p. 144.
      4For William Bates see C.R.
      5Edward Russell was the son of Francis Russell (1593-1641), the fourth Earl of Bedford. See D.N.B.
      6William Gurnall, Thomas Horton and John Lightfoot all conformed (see D.N.B. for details) but Stephen Ford was ejected from Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, for whom see C.R.
      7Henry Jeanes died at Wells in August 1662 and was buried in the Cathedral. See D.N.B.
      8This is George Booth, the first Lord Delamere, who led the insurrection in 1659. See D.N.B.
      9Unfortunately the letter was torn at this point and the ending is lost. The contents of the letter suggest that it was written in September 1662.
